SAIC Plans Cybersecurity Research And Development Center In Melbourne, Australia
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced its plans to expand its current Australian operations to include a regional cybersecurity research and development (R&D) center in Melbourne, Australia.
According the company, the center will focus on R&D in new technologies and applications that mitigate risk, protect critical data and protect against cybersecurity attacks on commercial and public sector networks around the world.
The move, the company explains, closely mirrors the cooperation between the two national governments and multiple federal agencies.
Additionally, researchers in the Melbourne R&D center will conduct research in data mining and analysis systems, as well as development of software applications associated with CloudShield® Technologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAIC, and TeraText product lines. The center will provide a collaborative space for SAIC researchers to develop hardware and software to protect information and critical infrastructure from cyber attacks.
